Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a cheap DJ?

To find a cheap or affordable DJ for your party or wedding, search for local DJs near you and ask for free cost estimates from several of them. While some DJ profiles may provide an automatically generated starting cost, it’s important to contact the DJ to get an idea of how much your particular request will cost. This also gives you the opportunity to ask them other important questions and make sure you are a good fit.

How do you book a DJ for a party?

To book a party DJ, start by comparing local pros in your area. Check out their ratings and reviews to find out: 

  • Are they professional?
  • Do they show up on time to set up for the party?
  • Do they know how to feel the energy in the room and adjust the music accordingly?
  • Are they friendly to guests and take song requests?
  • Do they specialize in the genres you want (pop, Top 40, hip-hop, etc.)?
  • Do they have experience playing at your type of event (weddings, birthday parties, etc.)?

Whenever possible, watch videos of their performances. 

Your last step is to contact three to five different DJs near you to ask them questions and get price quotes.

How much is a DJ?

When you hire a local DJ, expect to pay roughly between $300 and $800. But be aware that the actual price will vary based on several factors, including the length of the DJ’s set and how much of a presence they need to be. Larger venues can drive up the cost, as this requires more equipment, soundchecking and setup. Adding extras like confetti, fog, light shows and black lights also adds to the cost.

How much are wedding DJs?

Hiring a DJ typically costs anywhere from $300 to $1,200. It all depends on how long they’ll be working at your wedding and other various factors. The cost to hire a wedding DJ is usually higher than the cost to hire a DJ to play at a birthday party or similar event. 

To find out exactly how much your wedding DJ will cost, ask for a cost estimate from several professionals in your area.

Use Thumbtack to find wedding DJs in your area. Here, you can quickly see which local DJs have the highest ratings and best reviews. You can also see how many times each DJ has been hired, whether they’re responsive and if they’re in high demand.

How much do DJs charge per hour?

Hourly rates for DJs can vary depending on where you live, the event type (weddings, prom, birthdays, etc.) and many other factors. For an accurate hourly rate, request cost estimates from top-rated DJs near you.

Why do DJs ask how many guests are at the wedding?

It’s helpful to let your DJ know how many guests will be attending the wedding so they can ensure they have the right sound system and equipment. They may also ask more questions about your guests so they can ensure they have music that caters to the crowd. 

What questions should you ask wedding DJs?

To ensure you hire the best DJ for your wedding, ask these questions:

  • Are you available on my wedding date?
  • How much do you charge, and how do you set your prices?
  • What’s included in your rate (e.g., set up, clean up, etc.)?
  • How many weddings have you played at?
  • Do you have any references I can contact?
  • What kind of music do you specialize in?
  • Do you provide your own equipment, sound system, speakers, etc.?
  • Do you provide any other services (e.g., photo booth, lighting, etc.)?
  • Can guests request songs?
  • Will you accept a “Do Not Play” list?
  • How early would you arrive at the venue to set up?
  • Do you take breaks throughout the event? If so, how many and for how long?

Shane Zen provided music for our graduation party. Shane is very nice and professional and all the guests enjoyed the music. He can DJ but also played the guitar and sang. I would definitely hire him again.

Expectations had not been met AT ALL. We went over extensively with what music and specific songs we wanted played and did not hear any of them. We had taken a lot of time to figure out the songs we wanted for cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. We even filled out an in-depth questionnaire about our song choices and it seems that wasn’t even looked at. There was supposed to be music in the chapel and the dj was supposed to have had a set up in there and that never happened. My sister in law had to play music from her phone for our wedding ceremony. At one point the dj played a Christmas song ….in May. Honestly all of us laugh about it now but it really was very poorly done and unprofessional. We also said no country music and that played. The speakers made awful loud blasting noises and the dj kept scratching the turn tables during the speeches and it was inappropriate and we even asked him to stop. It was rude. Lastly, he had the music obnoxiously loud and when asked to turn it down he would and then 30 seconds later turn it up. Also there was an unwanted and very tacky fog machine. Very unhappy with every aspect of it but at least we can all laugh about it

Samuel was nothing short of amazing! He kept the music going seamlessly the whole time, and had our guests up dancing and having the time of their lives! We honestly recommend him to anyone! He had a 200+ mile round trip, got held back on the freeway due to a wreck (not him!), and was still here right on time. If you are stuck as we were trying to find a DJ with no clue how or where to find one, HIRE THE ILLEST! I promise you will be thrilled with him.
